Background  
The Energy Forum was established with the participation of renewable and decentralized energy technology NGOs, private-sector firms, government agencies, and prominent energy community members in Sri Lanka to address their common issues in 1991.  The Energy Forum which was originally a project of ITDG became a non profit organization in 1999.

The great success of Energy Forum has been its bottom-up focus. Starting from the grassroots, the Energy Forum convinced local Community Based Organisations of their role in addressing the energy needs of the communities they serve. From there, the Energy Forum networked at District, Provincial and National levels, resulting in the establishment of an energy network.

One of the key achievements of the Energy Forum has been the establishment of the Federation of Electrical Consumer Societies (FECS) to give end users and consumers a voice in the decision-making process regarding off-grid energy.  The FECS now has around 200 ECS members, representing over 10,000 off-grid powered households.

The Energy Forum plays an active role as an organization specialising in the field of energy and waste management and has made significant contributions to the promotion of the renewable energy technologies and delivery systems and sustainable waste management practices.
